go to LS1 tech and scroll down to boosted applications... most on that thread build basic 5.3 ls engines with a gt45 turbo or similar.. some very nice ideas and suggestions to help get on the right track...
Reason LS can handle boost stock at 9:1 SCR is the camshaft profile and heads.. Also running EFI would help with your tune be a easier running a turbo but is not nessary... guys run carb application all the time... but if you go the carb route.. do yourself a favor and install a wide band o2 sensor.. that will save you alot of guess work and help you tune to help minmize your chances from getting into detonation with increase of cylinder pressure.. buying a carb get a blow through not a draw through carb setup for turbo application... thats just if you go a carb route.... another helpfull tip.. dont know what heads you plan on running, but keep your totall timing to 22-25 all in by 2500 rpm.. cam run about 220-228 @50 114-116 LSA turbo specifc camshaft... agian just suggestion to help ya a little, good comon sinse goes along way.. you know what i mean... good luck on your project
